CHOICE Review

Golash-Boza (sociology and American studies, Univ. of Kansas) presents an analysis of immigration policy that includes a review of past policies, the impact of 9/11, and the creation of the Department of Homeland Security. Golash-Boza is of the opinion that the stricter scrutiny immigrants now face benefits the private sector and disproportionately affects people of color, and concludes with a call for an immigration policy that incorporates a human rights perspective. The author maintains that the intention of this work is to "shift the scholarly, political and public discourse toward one that recognizes the fundamental dignity of all human beings." Given such a lofty goal, one would reasonably expect some rigorous scientific analysis; however, readers are left with a work that is primarily an expression of the author's opinions. The discovery of new, empirically verifiable facts would have added to the author's effort to shift the discourse on immigration policy. The volume includes case studies and footnotes. Summing Up: Optional. General readers, undergraduate students, and professionals. J. S. Robey University of Texas at Brownsville
